Millwall to mark Remembrance Day this Saturday

Details of our ceremony this weekend as Millwall remembers

25 October 2019

Millwall's annual Remembrance Day fixture takes place at The Den on Saturday afternoon as The Lions face Stoke City in the Sky Bet Championship (kick-off 3pm).

The club is welcoming army and navy personnel as special guests this weekend, with soldiers pitchside ahead of kick-off against The Potters.

The pre-match ceremony will begin as the referee carries the matchball out on to the pitch, followed by three personnel, each carrying a wreath. They will be joined by a bugler.

Soldiers will welcome the teams and officials on to the pitch, before the bugler plays the Last Post. This will be followed by a minute's silence to remember the fallen. The period of silence will be ended by the referee's whistle.

All three wreaths will then be laid behind the goal - two at the Cold Blow Lane end and one behind the Stoke goal - in the final act of remembrance before the action gets underway.

Gary Rowett's men will be wearing poppies on their shirts this weekend but visitors Stoke will not as they have their own Remembrance game the week after.

You can also play a further part – bucket collections for the British Legion Poppy Appeal will be held around the ground before kick-off, so dig deep! Poppy badges will also be on sale in different locations around the stadium. They promise to sell fast, though, so be quick and don't miss out!

The Lions will be marking Remembrance Day this Saturday, with the Charlton Athletic fixture on Saturday 9th November designated as this season's 'Jimmy's Day', which focuses on the outstanding work done by Barry and Margaret Mizen, as well as the 'For Jimmy' organisation. Millwall will also wear poppies on their shirts for that game, after which all match-worn kits will be auctioned in order to raise more money for the British Legion Poppy Appeal.
